They Built Railway Cars: The Pullman Social Experiment and the Swedish Immigration, Allan T. Nilson


1 They Built Railway Cars: The Pullman Social Experiment and the Swedish Immigration
Allan T. Nilson

English translation from Swedish by Raymond E. Johnson. A large number of Swedes came to Chicago in the 1880s to live in the model town of Pullman and to work in the factory that produced luxury sleeping cars. The two main themes of this book are: 1) Two families among a group of immigrants from the Nykyrke Parish in Sweden-how they adapted to a new life and culture and founded their Lutheran church; and 2) Railroad car magnate George M. Pullman, who built the factories and the town where the Swedes came to work and live, in this "social experiment." The immigrants' stories are told through a collection of letters from a young man who came to Pullman in the early days and faithfully chronicled his workdays, housing, and his amazement and fascination with the big city of Chicago. Another man whose family stayed in Sweden writes a charming account of his life growing up in a tiny village-the life the emigrants left behind. George M. Pullman is portrayed as a leading industrialist and entrepreneur in the early development of American railroads, contributing many technological advances in the industry, making the rapid expansion of the railroads and the city of Chicago possible. His paternalistic attitude, typical of the time, led to the great strike of 1894 and the failure of the social experiment. The town thrives today under private ownership, protected by historical landmark status. This book contains many vintage photos and illustrations; a supplemental list of several hundred names of Emigrants from Nykyrke Parish, 1850-1910 (including dates of immigration and places of origin), and a fullname index.

Iron Horses: American Locomotives 1829-1900, E. P. Alexander


3 Iron Horses: American Locomotives 1829-1900
E. P. Alexander
240 pages, 8 1/4 x 11, paperback, Dover Publications
With names such as "Lightning," "Phantom," "Highland Light," and "Nathaniel McKay"--more reminiscent of swift clipper ships--the steam locomotives of the nineteenth century played an important part in developing America's western frontier. This book preserves many of the colorful stories that surround the exploits of those engines--from the earliest primitive machines to the imposing locomotives at the turn of the century. A brief text outlines the development of the railroad locomotive, from a steam carriage operated on the streets of Paris in 1769 to the mighty locomotives that thundered across the American West. A continuous picture story that outlines the locomotive's technical and economic development, this book is more than a collector's piece. It is also a comprehensive pictorial history. Supplementing his private collection of illustrations, the author has also included his own drawings of earlier engines. Handsomely formatted with representative material and reliable captions, this absorbing study will appeal to railroad fans of all ages. Unabridged republication of the original edition published by W. W. Norton & Company, Inc., New York, 1941. Bibliography. 98 plates of illustrations.

7 Myricks, Massachusetts: A Farming Settlement, A Railroad Village
Gail E. Terry
(1998), 2008, 5½x8½, paper, indices, 200 pp, Heritage Books
First settled around 1713, the small farming community of Myricks is named after one of the earliest families to settle in this section of Berkley in Bristol County, Massachusetts. The author's grandmother, Marian (Brailey) Stetson collected articles, pictures, memorabilia, and other items on the history of Myricks for more than forty years. With this information as a foundation, Ms. Terry has compiled an extensive history of Myricks that also includes a Myricks family genealogy. The settlement of the town is described and shown with several maps. Lists of farmers, current and previous street names, and detailed notes by the author, establish the town's early identity. The coming of the railroads, starting in 1839, brought new prosperity to the town. There were also some spectacular train accidents. A chapter about the Methodist church contains a list of ministers, and the chapter about schools contains several lists of teachers and a short history of each school. But the big event every year in Myricks was the Cattle Show and Fair, to which another chapter is devoted. The book also gives a wealth of information about fires, cemeteries, businesses, organizations, and other facts. The volume abounds with names and includes a subject and surname index. The Myrick Genealogy begins with Samuel, born 29 January 1687. Fifty illustrations include maps, homesteads, drawings, documents, landmarks, schools, ads, and much, much more! A delightful book!

The MA & PA: A History of the Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad [Second Edition, Revised], George W. Hilton


8 The MA & PA: A History of the Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad [Second Edition, Revised]
George W. Hilton
248 pages, 170 halftones; 28 line drawings, paperback, Johns Hopkins University Press
Affectionately known as the "Ma & Pa," the Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad was one of the country's longest running and best known "archaic" railroads, holding on to steam locomotion and other outmoded technologies well into the twentieth century. Connecting Baltimore and York, the line had everything needed to endear itself to local residents and rail enthusiasts: picturesque equipment, marvelous scenery, antique passenger trains, handsome small-scale locomotives, and enough curves-476-for a railroad many times longer than its 77 miles. All this made the Ma & Pa one of the most popular prototypes for model railroaders, George Hilton notes, and thousands of miniature versions of the line became part of model railroads throughout the world. This new paperback edition of Hilton's classic history includes a new introduction and epilogue in which the author recalls the line's final years of service. He also comments on the continuing interest of modelers, enthusiasts, and all who fondly remember the Ma & Pa.

About Author
George W. Hilton is a professor emeritus of economics at the University of California, Los Angeles. His many books on railroad and transportation history include American Narrow Gauge Railroads and The Cable Car in America.

Reviews
"Probably no railroad in the east has enjoyed more popularity with the model makers than this one . . . Once you have started to read this book, you'll have difficulty in letting it alone. The author is to be congratulated for giving us such a valuable and interesting history."—Railway & Locomotive Historical Society Bulletin

"George Hilton's affectionate yet complete and accurate account of Ma & Pa is at once all that the short line's host of admirers could ask as well as a model of How To Write Railroad History. Hilton can examine a balance sheet without forgetting the flanged drivers that generated its figures; to the past he can be sympathetic without letting the sentiment become sticky. In eight chapters he moves across the years from 3-foot beginnings to the road's World War I peak and beyond the lean times, amputation, and a 1960 I.C.C. refusal of an abandonment petition. His text is supported by a chronology, all-time engine and equipment rosters, employee timecard, maps, even a dispatcher's train sheet . . . The photo count exceeds 175 and these are supplemented by side and end elevation drawings of several locomotives and doodlebug 62."--Trains

Royal Blue Line: The Classic B&O Train between Washington and New York, Herbert H. Harwood, Jr


9 Royal Blue Line: The Classic B&O Train between Washington and New York
Herbert H. Harwood, Jr
200 pages, 200 halftones, 25 line drawings and a 16-page color insert, paperback, Johns Hopkins University Press
Although it was America's first public railroad, chartered in 1827, the Baltimore & Ohio did not enter the lucrative Philadelphia and New York City markets until the 1880s, long after its rivals, notably the Pennsylvania Railroad, had established themselves in the Northeast corridor. In order to compete, B & O executives realized they would need to create a railroad like no other, and in 1890 they launched the Royal Blue Line, offering premier passenger service between Washington, D.C., and New York City. Boasting the company's fastest locomotives (designed specifically for the line and featuring the country's first mainline passenger diesel engine), its most luxurious passenger cars (the first in the nation to be air-conditioned), and dining cars that served exquisite regional cuisine--as well as a motor coach service that took passengers from the line's New Jersey terminus into Manhattan, still fondly remembered by many as the most civilized way to enter the city--the Royal Blue Line was, as advertised, the "Finest Daylight Train Service in the World."
In Royal Blue Line, Herbert H. Harwood, Jr., recounts the 70-year history of the B & O's showcase service, detailing the creation of the "Royal Blue" image, the design of equipment and services appropriate to this image, the B & O's distinctive marketing campaigns, and its stubborn corporate pride in the line, which led to questionable business decisions and, ultimately, financial collapse. Generously illustrated with over 250 evocative photographs, advertisements, menus, timetables, and maps, Royal Blue Line vividly recalls America's most regal railway journey.

About Author
Herbert H. Harwood, Jr., worked in the finance and marketing departments of the B & O Railroad and its successor, Chessie System Railroads, for thirty years. He is the author of numerous books about railway history, including Impossible Challenge: The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in Maryland and The Lake Shore Electric Railway Story. He lives in Baltimore. Courtney B. Wilson is Executive Director of the B & O Railroad Museum, located in Baltimore.

Reviews
"Generations of East Coast travelers readily associate the name Royal Blue with memories of deluxe passenger-train service: streamlined design, carefully selected blue-and-gold color schemes, sleek locomotives, and luxury appointments. Herbert H. Harwood Jr.'s Royal Blue Line delightfully explores the history of this legendary train."--Courtney B. Wilson, Executive Director, B & O Railroad Museum

DIXIE LIMITED: Railroads, Culture, and the Southern Renaissance, Joseph R. Millichap


12 DIXIE LIMITED: Railroads, Culture, and the Southern Renaissance
Joseph R. Millichap
160 pages, 6 x 9, cloth, University of Kentucky Press
In the South, railroads have two meanings: they are an economic force that can sustain a town and they are a metaphor for the process of southern industrialization. Recognizing this duality, Joseph Millichap's Dixie Limited is a detailed reading of the complex and often ambivalent relationships among technology, culture, and literature that railroads represent in selected writers and works of the Southern Renaissance.
Tackling such Southern Renaissance giants as Thomas Wolfe, Eudora Welty, Robert Penn Warren, and William Faulkner, Millichap mingles traditional American and Southern studies-in their emphases on literary appreciation and evaluation in terms of national and regional concerns-with contemporary cultural meaning in terms of gender, race, and class. Millichap juxtaposes Faulkner's semi-autobiographical families with Wolfe's fiction, which represents changing attitudes toward the "Southern Other." Faulkner's later fiction is compared to that of Warren, Welty, and Ellison, and Warren's later poetry moves toward the contemporary post-Southernism of Dave Smith. These disparate examples suggest the subject of the final chapter-the continuing search for post-Southern patterns of persistence and change that reiterate, reject, and perhaps reconfigure the Southern Renaissance. As we enter the twenty-first century, that we recall how much the twentieth-century South was shaped by railroads built in the nineteenth century. It is also important that we recognize how much our future will be determined by the technological and cultural tracks we lay.

About Author
Joseph R. Millichap, professor of English at Western Kentucky University, is the author of four books, including Robert Penn Warren, and many essays and articles.

Reviews
"The focus is intriguing and deliciously eccentric."--Historical Geography “An ambitious study, which ranges across issues of traditional and modern culture, the relationships of African Americans and white writers in the South, and post-southernism. He effectively portrays the ambivalent and conflicted relationships of technology and literature. Millichap broadens our understanding of the Southern Renaissance by including many previously marginalized non-canonical figures, especially women and African Americans, as now central to the phenomenon.”—Charles Reagan Wilson
“Explores the intricate relationship between railroads of the South and the fiction and poetry of the South’s greatest writers.”—Southern Seen
“A detailed study of the complex association of technology, culture and literature that railroads represented in selected writers and works of the Southern Renaissance.”—Bristol Herald Courier
“An interesting study that provides for a better understanding of the Southern Renaissance.”—McCormick (SC) Messenger
“A vitally important addition to the canon of Southern literary criticism. . . . A great read and a great ride.”—Bowling Green Daily News
“What Millichap achieves in his few pages of reminding us that rails ran through our region’s best writing, is that railroads were a very major cultural influence—quite apart from economic value to a poverty-stricken region.”—Camden (SC) Chronicle-Independent, Woodford Country (KY) Sun
“Explores how railroads shaped the development of the South, and how the industry’s expanding influence was reflected in the writings of William Faulkner, Thomas Wolfe, Robert Penn Warren, and others.”—Trains
“Discusses both real and fictive, metaphorical and re-created trains chugging and breezing through the literature of the southern renaissance.”—Choice
